PRP Therapy


 

WHAT IS PRP?

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is concentrated from your own blood which contains healing factors, such as white blood cells and bioactive proteins, called growth factors and stem cell markers. These cells are vital for tissue regeneration and repair. Platelets, once thought of being responsible for only clotting, have been scientifically proven to be a reservoir of these vital healing components. With advanced techniques we are able to concentrate these regenerative healing cells in a simple outpatient setting. 


Obtaining PRP

A small amount of peripheral blood is taken from the patient and placed into a PDA medically approved container. This sterile disposable container is placed in a specialized centrifuge, for spinning, to separate the whole blood samples into 'layers' of platelet rich plasma (PRP) and red blood cells. The PRP layer is aspirated from the red blood cells and is injected or applied, under sterile conditions, into the localized area of abnormality. 


Little To No Risk Factors

PRP is from your own blood, autologous, so there is little to no risk when conducted by a trained professional. Since the cells are autologous there is no risk for and allergic or immune reaction, Side effects or complications with PRP are extremely rare. 

Procedure Time

The total process can last up to 30 minutes. However, the majority of the time will be used for processing by a trained medical specialist.
